Reason I'm brining this little gem up (perhaps again) is that I was listening to the SBD coming into work today and was dismayed at the lack of high end and a bit too much tape hiss. Well, I sat down and pulled up this AUD source. Oh, so much better. Very well defined and clean. Good stuff. Anywho, the show? Fantastic start to finish. Sugaree is on par with the Lake Placid monster and the Stranger just funks out in a 13 minute jam fest. The China/Rider has one of the sweeter transition jams you're going to come across. Clocking in at about 3 hours, it quickly becomes apparent that Jerry is on his game and is having fun, getting the whole band to really punch it up a notch. Second set is on fire with some exemplary playing from everyone. Could do much worse that give this one a listen if you're not already familiar with it. And even if you are, this one deserves a "re-visit".

PS: Something about Maine agreed with the band. Strong show after strong show played there. Some of my favorite show experiences were in that state.

This is the closest I ever got to an old-time Grateful Dead show ... the whole thing tops out at about 4-1/2 hours including tuning, and the monster second set is more like two second sets combined. Great location, great weather, great show. There's a very good Charlie Miller matrix out there somewhere - can't remember where I got it, but it's out there ...

Good matrix? That I'd like to hear. If they could mix the high end and thundering bass of the AUD with the clarity and "unwashed out" sound of the SBD, I'd be a very happy camper.

You probably found this for yourself already, but just in case - here you go:

It's down as a soundboard/audience composite - so you might have missed it if you were looking for a matrix.

Yeah, I think that's the source I had. Hiss is a bit much for my tastes and you don't get enough Phil (especially compared to the AUD I referenced at the start here). That's just me though.

Okey dokey - have you tried this one?

It's set one only and listed as a sbd but it doesn't sound like one to me. I much prefer the sound on this to the Miller version. Taste test Sugaree on both versions and I think you'll hear a real difference. Going to make you long to hear the rest of the show like this.
